We were looking forward to having chicks around again. Because she was the only motherly hen, I was fond of her. To have her attacked while taking care of her eggs is a horrible thing. We had to tell my own two babies that there probably won't be any chicks this year, since she was the only hen who seemed devoted enough to be a momma.
Worse yet is knowing there's a killer out there. Tonight the coop will be safely locked up, and hopefully the pen will be secured by tonight as well. No matter how much we reinforce the pen, I suspect there will be two light sleepers in my room tonight.
